Cecil Taylor is a man apart. An uncompromisingly experimental musician from his earliest years, Taylor has pounded keyboards for more than 50 years. He has worked with such luminaries as Max Roach and Mikhail Baryshnikov, and performed at the White House for Jimmy Carter. Taylor is a pianist, composer, poet, and professor. He is widely credited, along with Ornette Coleman, of being a pioneer of so-called “free jazz.”
